quilting in circles

Today I just realized that it has been some time since my last post. As we had some rain this afternoon (after months) and the temperature dropped, I decided that it was the right time to get on the computer and share some news. We have had very hot and sunny weather over the past weeks and I did not feel like sitting inside for a long time and sewing. But after all I finished another 2 small projects for Christmas :

  • a set of place mats for my sister-in-law. The design is by Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts  :

  • a wall hanging pattern that I found at Wooden Spoon on Flickr. I like to work with small squares and I wanted to try quilting in circles.

The outer circles are easy to quilt with the walking foot, but the smaller the circles are a challenge. Next time I have to sew slower and with a firm and steady hand.

So, for this year I have my Christmas decoration done. I am looking forward to start with my next project. This will be a new sewing room in the house and it means moving some furniture. I will have all my fabrics, wadding, tools and the design wall in one room. No need to tidy up every time I stop as I can close the door and leave everything as it is till the next time.

Happy sewing, thanks for stopping, Barbora

  1. Quilting circles is a bear. I sometimes do a spiral instead, beginning with a free motion quilting spiral and then continuing with a walking foot once I have about 3 inches done.
